I have a couple of the AMT '67 Impala's and was curious as to if anyone makes a resin conversion kit of sorts or at least a convertible boot for that car or a car like that that might be able to be modded to work? I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you for reading.

More work than just a top boot, I'm afraid: The rear of the body (rear deck) needs to be flatter, as with the Caprice, along with a revised interior having the narrower rear seat and the "dog legs" in the side walls to accommodate the top irons when the top is folded. A major project, trust me.

OK, thanks for the input. I guess I hadn't put enough thought into it.

Revell's '65 Impala convertible is due out soon- maybe some of those convertible specific parts would be of some use?

Or depending on what you want to spend, you could cut the roof off of this:

I figure if you use the AMT '67 Hardtop, and parts from the Revell '65 Convertible, a pretty nice convertible can be done. I may do one after I finish a couple of projects.
